Health Advisory
REFERRING PATIENTS TO THE DIVISION OF PUBLIC HEALTH FOR 2009 H1N1 VACCINATIONS

The Division of Public Health (DPH) has limited supply of H1N1 vaccine at its clinic sites which is being offered to the following groups at high risk of complications from 2009 H1N1 infection:

  • Pregnant women
  • People who live or care for children younger than 6 months of age
  • Children 6 months to 4 years of age
  • Persons 5 to 64 years of age who have medical conditions that put them at higher risk for influenza complications

Delawareans are urged to receive H1N1 vaccine from their regular medical provider when it is available.  However, knowing that high risk patients may not have access to vaccination through their regular care giver, providers may refer their highest risk patients to DPH clinics.  Patients may make appointments by calling the clinic sites below.
